SFMOMA (San Francisco Museum of Modern Art) presents 010101: Art in Technological Times, a series of art exhibitions examining the increasing presence and cultural influence of today’s digital technology. The fist part of the series, Online Presentation, launches through the Internet, as the exhibition’s title suggests, at one minute after midnight on January 1. Gallery Presentation, then, will appear at SFMOMA galleries starting March 3 through July 8.

Online Presentation features 5 digital works by Erik Adigard, Entropy8Zuper!, Mark Napier, Matthew Ritchie, and Thomson & Craighead. The newly commissioned projects are on view in the SFMOMA galleries as well as accessible at the SFMOMA web site and ArtMuseum.net, an Internet gallery by Intel. The sites offer a wide variety of interactive components to help viewers explore the further insightful observation of each work. The programs include online discussion forums, interpretive materials providing conceptual context of the projects, and Site Streaming, 24/7 netcasting services of each work demonstrated by artists.

The second series of 010101, Gallery Presentation starting this spring in SFMOMA galleries, will engage 35 contemporary artists, designers, and architects in creative experimentation with technology ,and its potential visual properties. The creators from North America, Europe, and Asia will focus on an individual response to today’s influx of digitally driven society, and compose new visual languages in a wide spectrum of formats, from traditional painting, sculpture, video work, to computer oriented installation. The participating artists include Asymptote Architecture, Rebeca Bollinger, Brian Eno, Aureia Harvey and Micha鼠 Samyn, Tatsuo Miyajima, Mark Napier, Adam Ross, Karin Sander and Sarah Sze.
